Starcraft 2: Tauren Space Mari by PhillGonzo Starcraft 2: Tauren Space Mari by PhillGonzo
Starcraft 2: Tauren Space Marine!
Modeled and textured by Phill Gonzales
Concepted by Samwise: [link]
Animated by Jay Hathaway

Samwise did this artwork as a promotional piece for his band Level 70 (at the time) Elite Tauren Chieftanís appearance at Blizzcon. I was pretty intent on modeling this character out as an easter egg in Starcraft 2 and started working on him in the fall during my free time. Things really got busy on the Starcraft 2 team and I didnít get much progress done with this character until a couple weeks before April. I was given permission to finish the model as on official task and soon after the Tauren Space Marine was finally in Starcraft 2. The Tauren steals the Marine Rifle and the Marineís animation rig which was easily adjusted for bovine proportions.

this makes me wonder if you'll ever have a Tauren Marine companion pet for WoW

Who knows, these things happen so fast that we can't even guess what the plan is.

They must get you to make the Tauren for WCIV. DON'T PRETEND IT'S NOT GOING TO HAPPEN! (Though probably not till after Legacy of the Void is out the door at least...)

why do ppl keep mentioning WC4 when there isnt really a way to make it? (since WoW is the end all be all for Warcraft lore)

I don't agree, I personally think WC4 could quite easily happen alongside WoW to be honest (possibly even crossing over between the two) also Blizz have said that there will be a WC4 at some point, having WoW does not prevent WC4 from happening.

Well, in the meantime we can hope for more Tauren in Starcraft DotA.
